As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Sakshi Bhoyar, “Global Networking Cable Market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period 2023-2031.

Networking cables provide a high level of security than wireless networks. A shielded network cable has a single connection to that server or workstation that no other workstation can see; hence, it is more secure than a wireless network. Although several measures including passwords for protected Wi-Fi networks help improve the security of wireless networks, they are never as secure as network cabling systems. It is easier for criminals to hack wireless data as compared to networking cables. For instance, one of the risk factors in the submarine is the growing volume of data flowing through cables, which encourages third countries to spy on or disrupt traffic. Fiber optic cable is extremely durable and intrinsically safe as it offers no risk of spark hazards since data is transferred via light and not electricity.

The outbreak of COVID-19 significantly hampered the electronics and semiconductor industry. Business and manufacturing units across various countries were closed, owing to an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases. Furthermore, the complete or partial lockdown impacted the global supply chain, making it difficult for manufacturers to reach their customers. On the supply side, the pandemic exposed risks that were previously unrecognized, leading to potential shortages of networking cables. The impacts of the pandemic slowed the installation of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks in Western Europe, which had significantly restrained the market.

The adverse impact was eventually mitigated by increased digitization, and massive internet penetration owing to the rising culture of remote working, remote learning, and online gaming and entertainment. The demand for high-quality audio, video, and data transmission increased rapidly, as most companies allowed their employees to work from home. Governments around the world implemented precautionary measures that forced people to stay at home, increasing the demand for fast internet connectivity. The ongoing need for the networking cables required for upgrading, operating, and maintaining the capacity of previously installed networks is expected to sustain the market in the coming years.
